Hi, my name is ***** ***** I can help. Donald Trump is not taking any public money to fund his presidential campaign, but he is accepting donation to help fund it. Just check is website: https://www.donaldjtrump.com/ and see the blue "Donate" option in the upper right corner. Candidate that accept public money have overall limits on how much they can spend, but by not accepting federal money, their is no limit to how much he is allowed to spend on his campaign.
Political contributions are not deductible by individuals and businesses and Mr. Trump is not allowed to deduct his own spending on his political campaign.
I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if I can clarify anything or answer any additional questions.
